“WHO’S WHO OF 2013″ YEAR-IN-REVIEW: MODEL STEPHANIE MANESCU
The holiday season is upon us and that means 2013 is quickly coming to an end. In honor of 2013, Kaboom! Magazine.com is getting together some of our favorite musicians, actors, fashion designers, models, athletes, and entertainment personality for our “Who’s Who of 2013″ Year-in-Review feature. We will be asking some of our favorite celebs their favorite moments of 2013 and how they’re preparing for an more explosive 2014. Today, we got a chance to look back at 2013 with Model Stephanie Manescu. Stephanie had a pretty busy 2013 as she was featured in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Checkout some of Stephanie’s thoughts on the year and what she is most looking forward to in 2014. Name: Stephanie Manescu Age: 20 Current Location: Pennsylvania Occupation: Model/Actress/Photographer Twitter: @stephmanescu Instagram: @stephaniemanescu If you could define 2013 in one hashtag it would be…..? #Wild What was your biggest achievement of 2013? Taking the time to focus on my own goals and really taking the time I needed to pursue what I love. What is something that you wish you did in 2013? I wish I would have spent a bit more time at home with my family and friends. I spent almost the entire year traveling, almost every other week. Best concert or sporting event you attended in 2013? I saw John Mayer live over the summer with a good friend (: I have loved John Mayer for years so I was left in awe. Most Shocking Moment of 2013? Becoming a Playboy model!! Two years after submitting my photos. Now I am currently waiting to do my test shoot for centerfold Playmate. If you could leave one thing behind in 2013, it would be…..? Letting people drain me and get in the way of my dreams. Best Meal of 2013? I had a few really great meals this year, one of my new favorites is probably at Jean Georges in NYC… great location and all of the food is incredible! Favorite Book of 2013? Favorite book right now is Sleeping, Dreaming, and Dying by the Dalai Lama. It’s a book that explores the different levels of consciousness from scientific, philosophical, and religious point of views… it’s really unique, and interesting! Favorite Movie of 2013? I’m currently anticipating seeing The Wolf of Wall Street more than anything right now!! I did a few scenes in the movie, and got to hear so much about it… I’ve been waiting over a year for it to come out now! Go see me in theaters. 1001224_397682743677199_1399018513_n Favorite TV Show of 2013? Orange is the New Black on Netflix. I got a call to do this show, but I was weary about it… I decided to watch it and became obsessed! It’s much different than most series I’ve seen. Every episode continues the story like that of a movie, most series revert back to the latest episode but completely forget about the very beginning. It’s incredibly written, it has the plot of a drama but the dialogue of a comedy. Favorite Album of 2013? John Mayer- Born and Raised and Young the Giant (self-titled). John Mayer really pushed for something different this year. I’m a huge fan. I love this new bluegrass-y feel he’s going for… and as for Young the Giant, although that’s an older album, I just discovered them this year and fell in love. They have a new album out in January though Also really excited for this up & coming band! www.soundcloud.com/theyetis Favorite Music Video of 2013? Favorite YouTube Video of 2013? I was obsessed with this video for awhile… I just really loved Disney when I was younger & was amazed by this guy’s range. Favorite Clothing Brand of 2013? I’m not horribly picky/obsessive about brands… if I like it I wear it. Georgio Armani has always been my favorite designer though. Favorite Shoes of 2013? I’m in love with Steve Madden boots! Favorite Website of 2013? www.theapbikiniteam.com/stephanie.html & www.playboy.com.mx/chicas/stephanie-manescu see for yourself! Favorite Technology of 2013? I got my Samsung Galaxy this year, and right before I was going to switch to iPhone, I happily stayed a droid user (; couldn’t be more content with that decision. Favorite Social Media of 2013? Instagram is the easiest for me, I post the most and love looking at other people’s photos. Favorite Charity of 2013? I worked with the Wounded Warrior Project and Operation Homefront with my bikini team this year, so I’ve definitely been pushing those 2013… The charity focuses on not only our troops currently in service, but those who have served and have been injured, and families back home. I’ve also been following a charity by Brett Novek called “Good HYOUman…” which donates to Lymphoma research. Brett sells clothes & jewelry to support a great cause and they’re all very well designed. www.shop.goodhyouman.com What are you most looking forward to in 2014? Looking forward to see where my job takes me, and all the new places & faces I can meet! Why should we lookout for you in 2014? I think 2014 will be the year I finally become a Playmate, and who knows… maybe that will lead to Playmate of the Year! Words of Wisdom heading into 2014? Always be yourself and don’t let others determine who you are. You success should not be weighed by what other people think of you, but rather what you think of yourself. Do as much as you can for others, but not to the point that it drags you down. You are the only person who can make yourself a number one priority… so always treat yourself the way you deserve to be treated. 1480587_452848944827245_86554821_n
